Objectives of the project

The European Cross-Border Skills (ECBS) project is a strategic partnership for higher education funded with support from the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme during three years (2017-2020).

The ECBS project is coordinated by the Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour in collaboration with four cross-border university groupings around France: 

- a Franco-Spanish grouping with the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, the Universidad de Zaragoza and the Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea;

- a Franco-Italian grouping with the Université Savoie Mont Blanc and the Università della Valle d'Aosta;

- a Franco-German grouping: Eucor-The European Campus;

- a Franco-German-Luxembourgish-Belgian grouping with the Université de la Grande Région and the Universität des Saarlandes;

And receive support from the Communauté d’Universités et d’établissements d’Aquitaine, which is an associated partner of the project.

The purpose of the ECBS project:

  • Highlighting the knowledge and skills developed by students and staff in connection with the cross-border geographical location of universities;
  • Developing tools for articulating and assessing the transversal skills developed in cross-border contexts;
  • Facilitating the exchange of best practices among higher education institutions involved in cross-border projects and collaborations.
